    True. But there was no necessity for even calling that play.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    I think the proposals I outlined would get the Reds guys worth having.

    As I've said a thousand times, the Reds are overly right handed, have a bizarre platoon in left field, have no switch hitters (haven't forever), need patient professional hitters, need contact hitters.

    Not looking for stars. Just guys who will have the lefty/righty percentages on their side and make consistent contact.

    So in games like this they can get an occasional sac fly or key base hit against a sub-par righty starter.

    The tools needed to measure the smallness of the small ball from that inning are a mere decade away from the prototype phase.

    Campana grounds to Cueto who bobbles it but just recovers in time to throw out Campana.

    Last few seasons, Dusty's overuse of relievers drove me crazy.

    So far this year, Dusty's bunt plays are driving me crazy.

    There was no reason for a squeeze play there. Harris is a lefty hitter who can hit a fly ball or run scoring grounder there.

    What amazes me about Dusty is that his bunt plays so seldom work. His players don't bunt that well and the plays usually fail. Even the pitchers don't sacrifice that well, or at least it appears so.

    Couldn't agree more. I've been sounding these themes as long as you have. I just think that the trades we made--particularly that for Latos--have used up pretty much all the "fat" in the system, if you will. Trading from here on in is pretty much cutting to the bone.

    Nice effort by Cozart. Infield hit for Castro. 1st and 3rd.
